  1. Four killed after massive sinkhole opens in Chinese city Four people have died after they were swallowed up by a massive sinkhole in a Chinese city, despite desperate rescue efforts to save them. According to state media, the sinkhole opened up around 2:30 p.m. Sunday in Dazhou, Sichuan province. Dramatic video from the scene showed people suddenly plunging through the pavement as it collapsed beneath them. Two victims died after being pulled from the pit and rushed to a hospital, state media said. They were reportedly married only days before. https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/09/asia/china-sinkhole-sichuan-intl/index.html
  2. Indonesia tsunami toll tops 800 amid search for survivors Rescue officials feared the full scale of Indonesia's earthquake and tsunami could climb far past the more than 800 already confirmed dead, as several large coastal towns remained cut off Sunday by damaged roads and downed communication lines. The country's disaster agency said the death toll more than doubled to 832, and nearly all of those were from the hard-hit city of Palu on the island of Sulawesi. The regencies of Donggala, Sigi and Parigi Moutong — with combined populations of 1.2 million — had yet to be fully assessed. "The death toll is believed to be still increasing since many bodies were still under the wreckage, while many have not been reached," said agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho. He said a mass burial would be held Sunday for health reasons. Bodies covered in blue and yellow tarps lined the streets of Palu, while rescuers dug through rubble in the hopes of finding survivors from the twin disasters that struck Friday evening. There was particular focus on the eight-story Roa-Roa Hotel, where voices from underneath the rubble could be heard calling out for help on Saturday. https://www.yahoo.com/news/indonesia-tsunami-toll-tops-400-amid-search-survivors-025152550.html?soc_trk=gcm&soc_src=69f70237-124f-3ea9-acd0-fc922af945e2&.tsrc=notification-brknews
  3. SNOW ON THE SAVANNAH Giraffes and elephants wander about in the snow after freak blizzards hit Africa Giraffes, antelopes and elephants were all among the beasts braving the freeze after the white stuff hit South Africa over the weekend. Pictures of the snow covered creatures have swept across social media as viewers marvel at the bizarre scenes. Kitty Viljoen captured elephants enjoying the snow in the Sneeuberg on the Western Cape of South Africa, where snow hit late last week. Sneeuberg translates to Snow Mountain and dustings are not unusual across parts of South Africa in the winter, but this cold snap comes particularly late in the season. She also photographed giraffes in snow in the Karoo semi-desert region. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7229712/snow-south-africa-blizzards-desert-giraffes/

  6. Hurricane Hector closing in on Hawaii and volcano Hurricane Hector became a Category 4 storm for a few hours early Sunday but then dipped back to Category 3, still a dangerous force, as it headed across the Pacific, threatening to hit Hawaii’s Big Island and possibly its active volcano, officials said early Sunday. Hector’s winds dropped to 125 mph from 130 mph, the diving line between Categories 3 and 4, early Sunday as it moved westward at 12 mph Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said in an advisory. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-hawaii-volcano-hurricane/hurricane-hector-closing-in-on-hawaii-and-volcano-idUSKBN1KQ060
  7. Bali rocked after 6.9 magnitude earthquake strikes Indonesia's Lombok Island, deaths reported Authorities in Indonesia lifted a tsunami warning on Sunday after a strong earthquake rocked the popular tourist mecca of Bali, leaving at least three people dead a week after another quake in the same region killed more than a dozen people. Dwikorita Karnawati, head of Indonesia's Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, told MetroTV that the tsunami warning has ended, adding that the warning was for the lowest level of tsunami, and that small waves just 6 inches high were detected in three villages. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/08/05/tsunami-warning-issued-after-magnitude-7-0-earthquake-rocks-indonesia-tourist-hotspot-bali.html
  8. BREAKING: PANIC in Venezuela as EXPLOSIONS hit during speech by President Maduro EXPLOSIONS from drone attacks have injured seven and caused panic in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, during an address to a military parade by President Maduro, the country's Information Minister has confirmed. Video footage of the attack shows soldier fleeing Avenida Bolivar, a main street in the capital, while screams can be heard in the background. Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said seven soldiers were injured but President Maduro was "fine" and had been taken to safety. He added: "We have proof that this was an assassination attempt. They've failed."

  9. How to Watch the Longest 'Blood Moon' Eclipse of the Century Get ready for a celestial double feature unlike anything seen in decades: Mars is about to make its closest approach to Earth in 15 years—just as the full moon blushes red in the longest “blood moon” eclipse of the century. Both the moon and Mars will dominate the overnight hours on July 27 and into the morning of July 28, traveling across the sky beside each other while appearing to be separated by only five degrees, equal to the width of three middle fingers held at arm’s length. On the 27th, the red planet will reach opposition and be just a few days shy of swinging the closest it has come to Earth since August 2003, allowing sky-watchers around the world to see our neighboring world that night about as big and bright it can ever get in our skies. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2018/07/news-how-to-see-longest-blood-moon-eclipse-mars-space/
  10. Tremors shove Washington westward, offer clues into next big earthquake Thousands of tiny tremors over the past few months have moved parts of Washington and Vancouver Island westward. It’s a near annual event that backs expectations by some scientists that a big earthquake may hit the Seattle area harder than their previous models suggested. This recent wave of activity began in May and appears to be dying off now, according to University of Washington earth-sciences professor Ken Creager. It’s a process, known as episodic tremor and slip, thought to increase stress on locked faults — areas where tectonic plates cannot move past each other. Earthquakes occur when the pressure on locked zones reaches the breaking point and the plates snap past each other. Scientists believe an episode of tremors could someday trigger a so-called megaquake on the offshore fault called the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The 700-mile-long fault runs from Vancouver Island to northern California, and can unleash earthquakes of up to magnitude 9.0. It’s one of the biggest of faults in the U.S. While older models suggest that the locked zone is mostly shallow and offshore, the location of these tremors indicates that in a big earthquake, layers of rock jerking past each other may take place closer to Seattle than previously thought. https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/science/tremors-shove-washington-westward-offer-clues-into-next-big-earthquake/
  11. At least 12 injured after lava explosion near tour boat off Big Island At least a dozen people were injured after a lava explosion sent rocks and debris flying into the air and landing on a tour boat off Kapoho early Monday, according to Hawaii County officials. MORE According to Big Island fire officials, a lava bomb punctured the roof of the boat, leaving a large hole. It happened sometime in the early morning hours, but it's not clear exactly what time. However, county officials said the lava tour boat returned to Wailoa Harbor in Hilo with the injured passengers around 7 a.m. http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/38655817/at-least-12-injured-after-lava-explosion-near-tour-boat-off-big-island
  12. Volcano eruption leaves thousands stranded in Bali Hundreds of people have been forced to flee their homes and 16,000 passengers have seen flights cancelled after a volcano erupted in Indonesia. The eruption of Mount Agung on the island of Bali spewed ash 8,200ft into the air, grounding 276 flights in and out of Ngurah Rai airport. People living in villages below have fled to evacuation centres. "Micro tremors are still being detected... indicating that magma is moving towards the surface," Sutopo Purwo Nugroho of the disaster mitigation agency said. He said 309 residents living in a danger area 2.5 miles from the crater had voluntarily gone to three evacuation centres on Friday. https://news.sky.com/story/volcano-eruption-leaves-thousands-stranded-in-bali-11420554

  14. Shocking satellite photos show entire towns obliterated after Guatemala's 'Volcano of Fire' buried them in tons of ash that crushed hundreds of homes and burned 300 people alive Giant clouds of superheated smoke and ash burned people alive and buried entire towns in a deadly volcanic eruption in Guatemala that killed almost 100 people. Shocking satellite photos of before and after Sunday's eruption show whole suburbs wiped off the map as hundreds of houses collapsed when tons of falling ash crushed them. What was once a collection of green canyons, hillsides and farms was reduced to grey devastation by fast-moving avalanches of super-heated muck that roared into the tightly knit villages on the mountain's flanks. Volcan de Fuego, meaning 'Volcano of Fire' spewed a 'curtain' of ash 20,000ft into the air and sent rapid pyroclastic flows through at least seven nearby towns in the biggest eruption for four decades. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5816065/Shocking-satellite-photos-entire-towns-obliterated-Guatemala-volcano.html
